The Paludarium was completely transformed over water. The two 125 Watt HQL emitters were exchanged for used 70 watts Duplalux-LI rope lights that have been repainted.
The plants in hydroponic pots were removed as they were so grown and overgrown all Paludarium had (many long tendrils that were bare and had only at the ends of leaves).
On the walls above the aquarium were cork boards where applied coconut and Para nutshells as plant pots with hot glue, in this the various emergent plants were potted.
To my Epiphytenstamm in the middle, over the pool, was still a laid with orchids and bromeliads planted Korkast. Through the exchange of HQL lamps to the HQI lights of plant growth in the aquarium has exploded, I did not think that much mind.
